Sticky Note From God ~08.31.20~

James 2:20-24


Hamster Wheel Faith ~

Some Christian’s faith,
is like a hamster wheel . . .
and the faster they go
the more their faith reels.

They never stop spinning,
around and around . . .
for their faith isn’t rooted
on the firm, solid ground.

Some Christians don’t see,
their in a spiritual rut
or notice by sin . . .
their still firmly stuck.

The same old things,
they just keep on doing
to their old worldly ways
they keep on pursuing.

Some Christian’s faith,
is like a hamster wheel
for running the good race
causes them to squeal!


Hebrews 12:1

Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily
beset us, and let us run with
patience the race that is
set before us,

Psalm 144:1


God, My Defense~

God, my Defense,
my Shield, my Defender
may to Your power
my life I surrender.

For You are my Guard,
my Tower, my Protector
Your Word is to me
satan’s arrow deflector.

God, my Defense,
my Buckler, my Foothold
onto Your foundation
may I build my household.

For You are my Fortress,
my Security, my Safeguard
when Your righteous way
I  heed and regard.

God, my Defense,
my Rock, my Foundation
You are my only hope . . .
for peace and salvation!


Zechariah 9:15

The Lord of hosts
shall defend them;

Romans 12:2


Mind Renewal ~

Sometimes with myself,
I get sick and tired . . .
especially since the old man
I thought had expired.

But, he seems to come back,
every now and then . . .
and I have to figure out
how to get rid of him again.

So whenever I find myself,
with the old man in a battle
on the Word I stand my ground
so my faith he can’t rattle.

For, he would love to see me,
once again in his control . . .
but, I refuse to allow him
back into my heart and soul.

Sometimes I have to fight,
the old man off with the new
that’s why I keep the spirit . . .
of my mind daily renewed!


Ephesians 4:22-23

That ye put off concerning
the former conversation
he old man, which is corrupt
according to the deceitful lusts;

And be renewed in the spirit
of your mind;

Isaiah 41:10


Faint Not ~

Faint not,
do not tire
don’t forget
satan’s a liar.

Keep on,
keeping on
for your Father
and His Son.

Faint not,
do not pass out
don’t let satan
cause any doubt.

Press on,
pressing on
soon the harvest
will be drawn.

Faint not,
do not surrender
keep on pressing on . . .
into heaven’s splendor!


Galatians 6:9

And let us not be weary
in well doing: for in
due season we shall reap,
if we faint not.

Ephesians 3:20


God Is Still Able ~

When life gets hard,
and the road gets rough
when all that lies ahead
seems difficult and tough.

Remember God is still able,
to turn things around . . .
so keep on trusting Him
to avoid a breakdown.

When all that you see,
is hardship and adversity
when all that you feel
is the fear of uncertainty.

Remember with God,
nothing is too troubling
just keep on believing Him
so to keep from unraveling.

When life gets tough,
when the road seems long
remember God will give you . . .
the faith to make you strong!


Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea,
I will uphold thee with
the right hand of my righteousness.

Romans 5:8


My Warts and All ~

I kissed me a prince,
but he turned into a toad
then he sent me packing . . .
down the lonely road.

So I went out searching,
looking for someone to love . . .
thought he’d be here on earth
instead He came from above.

With all of my ugly warts,
Jesus saw what was inside
for He discovered in me . . .
what other’s tossed aside.

He peered into my soul,
looked deep into my heart
so I took a leap of faith and found
my True Love from the start.

So if you are out there looking,
for a Prince to forever love . . .
stop chasing after all the toads
and just look to Jesus up above!


1 Samuel 16:7

“But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him:
for the Lord seeth not
as man seeth; for man looketh
on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

Hebrews 13:20


God, My Comforter ~

God, my Comforter,
my Helper, my Aide
when I am fired tested
You provide me shade.

Your wings cover me,
under them I stay
while the storms of life
steady blow my way.

God my Comforter,
my Calmness, my Peace
on me Your mercy
each day You release.

When I am troubled,
You make me for You strong
so I may help others
when trials too come along.

God my Comforter,
my Guard, my Protector
may I be for You . . .
a comfort injector!


2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Blessed be God,
even the Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ, the Father of
mercies, and the God of all comfort;

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation,
that we may be able to comfort them which
are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith
we ourselves are comforted of God.

Thou shalt increase my greatness,
and comfort me on every side.

Ephesians 3:19


Filled With God Goodness ~

I want to know God,
in all of His Fullness
so I can understand
all of His Goodness.

I want to discover,
the power He imparts
so that it can change
every inch of my heart.

I want to know Jesus,
His gift of eternal life
so I can be set free
of my earthly strife.

I want to be steadfast,
strong and consistent
so to fleshly desires
I’ll be readily resistant.

I want to understand God,
His Fullness, His Goodness
I want to take hold of Jesus
His Love, His Forgiveness!


Ephesians 3:19

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge,
That you may be filled to the

measure of all the fullness of God.

Romans 13:14

Put on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make no provision for
the flesh, to gratify its desires.

Matthew 5:14


The Light of Salvation~

My eyes have seen,
salvation’s Light
they have been given
a new glorious sight.

For once they were closed,
to the Truth and the Way
but now they observe
God’s mercy each day.

My eyes were shown,
Jesus’ Love and Grace
they have seen the light
now the Life they embrace.

For once they were shut,
but now they clearly see
the promise of peace
God has awaiting for me.

My eyes have observed,
the Light of salvation
and now they hold hope
in Christ’s resurrection!


Ephesians 5:14

Wherefore he saith,
Awake thou that sleepest
and arise from the dead
and Christ shall give thee light.

Psalm 46:10


Be Still My Soul ~

Be still my soul,
be still and rest
know for you
God has the best

Wrestle not,
with your fear
believe oh, soul
God is near.

Be calm my heart,
be clam and quiet
soak in the peace
of His Spirit.

Grapple not,
with your doubt
believe oh, heart
He’ll work things out.

Be still my soul,
oh, heart be unruffled
trust in God . . .
and be untroubled!


Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.
